What is SpeechRater™?

Modified on Wed, 03 Aug 2022 at 02:37 PM

SpeechRater™ is proprietary technology developed by ETS® that uses speech recognition technology to measure spontaneous speech used in the Speaking section of the the TOEFL iBT® test.

My Speaking Score uses the ETS® SpeechRater™ scoring engine to provide users score estimates about their TOEFL® Speaking responses as well as comparison data about similar TOEFL® Speaking responses. 

SpeechRater reports are available inside My Speaking Score, and provide details about response delivery, language use, and topic development, so users can ascertain which aspects of their TOEFL Speaking responses need improvement. 

ETS has been helping test takers prepare for the Speaking section of the TOEFL test with SpeechRater since 2006, so it's a well established, reliable, and valid technology that not only helps our users prepare for the TOEFL Speaking section, but is also used to assess real TOEFL Speaking responses delivered on test day.
